Imperial China & Yangtze River Cruise

A great trip in regards to where we went and what we saw, however the group was far too big, 17, which had an impact on pace we could go and at times it felt like we were like any other tour group being herded around which is not why I chose to go with Exodus.

Exodus Response

We would like to thank Judith for her review, although we are sorry that she had some concerns regarding the group size and the number of passengers on the boat cruise. It is extremely rare that a group size should exceed 16 as we realise that smaller groups can ensure a good group dynamic and experience; we would therefore like to apologise that this negatively impacted upon her enjoyment of the trip. The trip notes for 2016 have been updated as to the number of passengers on the boat cruise, but we regret the disappointment this caused.

This is a rather hectic tour, often using public transport. You see a great deal of China, though there is very little free time. Exodus are quite wrong in describing the trip as leisurely - in particular, when using trains you will have to carry your luggage a long way, up and down stairs, and through extremely crowded areas.

Great trip but u are in China!

This is a very good trip which allows u to experience a lot of what is China. Travelling overnight trains, fighting your way thru crowds at train stations, eating in local restaurants u would not find on your own, being crushed in local markets and on subways, staying in reasonable hotels in centre of cities, crazy pedestrian and street traffic, but also seeing the wonderful sights of the Great Wall, terra cotta warriors, westernized Shanghai, Yangtze River, and Beijing to mention a few.

We wanted to get a real insight into China and see the great icons of the country too and this trip certainly delivered on both fronts. It was hard work at times because of the full on travel but the upside was that we saw a lot of the country and how the infrastructure works (or doesn't, with floods in Xi'ian!). Our guide Alan/Hongbin Liu was excellent - more on him later.

Everything's bigger in China

Fascinating jam-packed itinerary of one of the most important influences of the modern world. Looking at the historical sites (like the Great Wall, the Summer Palace lake, the Terracotta Army) side-by-side with modern China's immense infrastructure projects (the railway tunnels/bridges, the Three Gorges dam and ship locks) demonstrates how China has always done things fearlessly and BIG.

This has been a truly amazing adventure. The itinerary although very extensive, enabled the group to feast upon the historical sites, cultural & diversity aspects of this amazing country. There was plenty of opportunity to interact with the locals which was very interesting which one wouldn't normally find on such a tour

This trip covers many miles, many modes of transport, many different activities and many memorable sights. The itinerary is quite full without feeling too rushed. There is a good mix of history, culture (both new and old) and scenery. Overall it's good value, enjoyable and an experience I wouldn't want to have missed.

This trip has a packed itinerary and takes in several of China's most well-known sites. If you enjoy sightseeing and have an interest in Chinese history, culture and scenery then I would certainly recommend it. You should be prepared for some days where there is a lot of travel and also for some early starts, but they are included for a good reason (e.g. to see the pandas early while they are still awake, get to the Great Wall before large crowds of other visitors turn up etc.). With China having so much to offer you can't possibly see everything in the time available, but I felt that the organisers had made excellent use of the time and it's hard to imagine that we could have done a lot more than we did. As well as the main itinerary there are also a number of excellent optional shows and activities for those who want to experience even more!

Excellent tour of China's major sites (ACE)

5
This tour was very comprehensive, taking in many of China's top sites. This does mean alot of travelling between points but what you see definitely makes up for that. The hightlight for me in Beijing was the Great Wall appearing on a steep ridge. Onto Xian the scale and individual details of the Terracotta Warriers amazed everyone. Seeing the Giant Panda's so close and active by being first visitors of the day was brilliant. This is busy trip with optional shows in the evenings and stunning Yangshou a chance to improve your Cooking, Cycling and Calligraphy skills!
